    No, the 45 Autorim was designed to be used in revolvers that required half-moon clips for the 45 ACP round. The autorim headspaces on the rim instead of the case mouth as does the 45 ACP.

    the cartridge rim would probably be too thick to allow the cylinder to close as well.

    Thanks for the info. Last week I bought a 45 lc and can not find ammo for it. Just ordered 500 swc bullets and reloading dies so at least I can roll my own.
